The east side rarely if ever sees any snowfall. Around the strip, snow will fall occasionally but not stick, over in Summerlin and Centennial Hills though? It snows almost every year whether it sticks or not, if it does stick, it will melt in a few hours and its never more than an inch or so

I agree with the other posters there really isn't a single non-snow state in the US. Even Florida gets snow on an annual basis (but thats mainly northern FL and the panhandle) but I can give you a list of "non-snow" cities, cities that don't see snow on an annual basis, or more than 10 inches a year, I dont think the list is long though

Anywhere in FL
Houston, TX
San Antonio, TX
DFW, TX (though they have seen snow before, but rarely)
Exactly. I'm surprised OP didn't mention TX. I agree with everyone else: it snows everywhere. However, in Houston, snow is EXTREMELY rare. It snows about once every 8 years. And when it does, it snows for one day, we get a powdery dusting, and it melts within a few hours. It probably snows here less than any other city, at least any other large city. This is due to a variety of factors: our vicinity to the Gulf of Mexico, our southern location, and warm temperatures year round compared to other cities.
